Free Research Tools: New AI Brief Analyzer

There’s a new free online tool for analyzing briefs called EVA. The AI-based product by ROSS Intelligence debuted at Legaltech/Legalweek New York. Legalweek is an event dedicated to business and technology in the legal field, featuring workshops, conferences, and a tradeshow.

After completing the free registration, users can upload briefs to the EVA website. EVA will check the cases cited in the brief to determine if they are still good law, similar to Shepard’s and KeyCite. EVA can also locate additional cases analogous to a cited case, or that use comparable language.

EVA is very similar to another AI-based product called CARA, by Casetext, which was launched in 2017. The creators of CARA even proposed a digital duel at Legalweek, challenging EVA to a live head-to-head comparison.
